Reversible Beverage / BOG low noise receiving antenna system

The BevFlex-4X system can be configured as an above ground Beverage, a Beverage-On-Ground, and EWE, FLAG, or VE3DO reversible, low noise, receiving antenna.
It is made entirely out of inexpensive RG-6 CATV coaxial cable and can be conveniently fed anywhere along the length of the antenna.
I have a 375' E/W above ground reversible Beverage antenna and a 40' N/S EWE antenna (space limitation for N/S direction).
I feed them through an antenna switch to the RX-A input of my Flex 6600M.   I have found these two antennas to be indispensable for working low band DX from 160m through 30m.

    I hope to get a pair of these running this fall.  Unfortunately the weather turned bad before my coax cable arrived and there is no way that I will be able to trench in the feedlines to the two beverages this year.
    Also I had to take my brush cutter off and replace it with a snow plow.  That means I will still have thick brush to get through to get the beverages strung between the trees in my woods.
